This was the introduction to Donald Trump’s speech Friday night, accompanied with chants of “USA! USA!”
The background screen was filled with an image from the historical musical with the caption “Les Deplorables.” Trump also greeted the crowd by saying, “Welcome to all of you deplorables!”
Especially those that remember for a FACT that Hillary Clinton’s people started the “birther” meme back in 2008 when she was going after then-Senator Obama.
The Liberal Media has been working itself into a frenzy lately playing word games like saying since Hillary HERSELF didn’t say it, it didn’t happen or simply it never happened despite the evidence to the contrary.
Liberals never let facts get in the way of their Agenda. The End justifies the means, after all. So lying is an acceptable means.
So the same outlets that reported the story in 2008 are now denying it vehemently with great gusto and partisan passion in 2016 because now SHE is running.
Bloomberg’s John Heilemann—the co-author of the 2008 campaign book Game Change—and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough also confirmed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was behind mainstreaming the birther theories.
“Hillary Clinton Didn’t Tell The Truth About Her Emails And She Didn’t Tell The Truth About Her Campaign’s Role In Pushing These Rumors In 2008.” – Jason Miller,Hillary Campaign Manager
PATTI SOLIS DOYLE: There was a volunteer coordinator, I believe in late 2007, I think in December, one of our volunteer coordinators in one of the counties in Iowa. I don’t recall whether they an actual paid staffer, but they did forward an e-mail that promoted the conspiracy.
WOLF BLITZER: The birther conspiracy?
DOYLE: Yeah. Hillary made the decision immediately to let that person go. We let that person go.
Read Mark Penn’s 2007 memo to Hillary Clinton on Obama’s “lack of American roots” here: http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2008/08/penn-strategy-memo-march-19-2008/37952/
Smith and Tau wrote in the Politico piece:
Just when it appeared that public interest was fading, celebrity developer Donald Trump has revived the theory that President Barack Obama was born overseas and helped expose the depth to which the notion has taken root—a New York Times poll Thursday found that a plurality of Republicans believe it. If you haven’t been trolling the fever swamps of online conspiracy sites or opening those emails from Uncle Larry, you may well wonder: Where did this idea come from? Who started it? And is there a grain of truth there?The answer lies in Democratic, not Republican politics, and in the bitter, exhausting spring of 2008. At the time, the Democratic presidential primary was slipping away from Hillary Clinton and some of her most passionate supporters grasped for something, anything that would deal a final reversal to Barack Obama.
Tau and Smith detailed in a lengthy four-page-long investigation how in April 2008, when Clinton was slipping in her battle against Obama for the Democratic nomination for the presidency, “Clinton supporters”—as they say—circulated an anonymous email chain that pushed the theory.
“Barack Obama’s mother was living in Kenya with his Arab-African father late in her pregnancy. She was not allowed to travel by plane then, so Barack Obama was born there and his mother then took him to Hawaii to register his birth,” the email that Clinton supporters circulated read.
Those anonymous people were hardly the only ones. In fact, as Joshua Green reported in The Atlantic in August 2008, a March, 19, 2007 strategy memo from longtime Clinton adviser Mark Penn proves that the Clinton campaign itself was pushing the conspiracy theory. Penn, in the memo, advocated that Clinton target Obama’s “lack of American roots.”
In fact, Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle confirmed that Penn wrote the memo via Twitter on Friday of this week—and also appeared on CNN to confirm that he did while working for the campaign and that he was fired for it.
During her CNN appearance with Wolf Blitzer, Doyle made it clear that Penn was a staffer and was fired by Clinton herself for spreading the rumor:
BLITZER: Someone supporting Hillary Clinton was trying to promote this so-called Birther issue? What happened?
DOYLE: So we — absolutely, the campaign nor Hillary did not start the Birther movement, period, end of story there. There was a volunteer coordinator, I believe, in late 2007, I believe, in December, one of our volunteer coordinators in one of the counties in Iowa — I don’t recall whether they were an actual paid staffer, but they did forward an email that promoted the conspiracy.
BLITZER: The Birther conspiracy?
DOYLE: Yeah, Hillary made the decision immediately to let that person go. We let that person go. And it was so, beyond the pale, Wolf, and so not worthy of the kind of campaign that certainly Hillary wanted to run.
That’s not all. In fact, former Washington, D.C., McClatchy newspapers bureau chief James Asher on Twitter directly confronted Clinton questioning why her close friend and adviser Sidney Blumenthal was personally pitching him the story on Obama’s birthplace back in the 2008 election.
The former D.C. bureau chief for McClatchy claims that a representative from the Clinton campaign approached him about investigating the Obama “birther” claim in 2008. The new claim is casting doubt on the Clinton’s denial that her campaign was the first to raise questions about President Barack Obama’s place of birth.
In a recent tweet, former bureau chief James Asher said that in 2008 Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime Clinton staffer and confidant, told him “face-to-face” that Obama was born in Kenya.
Even, Mr. “thrill up my leg” Chris Matthews:
Not only that, though, but as MSNBC’s Chris Matthews detailed back in 2008, Hillary Clinton herself refused to put the rumors to bed.
“Hillary Clinton seemed to pass up an opportunity to once and for all put to rest the false rumor that Barack Obama is a Muslim,” Matthews said on his show on March 3, 2008.
Matthews said that Clinton was “going after him [Obama] on this Muslim issue” and that it was clear she had given up on “a clear chance to dismiss these bad stories being pushed by bad people that he‘s not the religion he clearly [is] to try to disturb people. She had a clear opportunity on ’60 Minutes’ to clear that up and she didn‘t take it.”
But we also know that the Liberal Media doesn’t care about the facts.
I was in an airport waiting for a flight yesterday and the banner on the bottom of the CNN news cast was about how Trump Lied. On my connecting flight 2 hours later, CNN was STILL again or still arguing that it was a lie.
Liberals are impervious to facts when facts conflict with their Agenda.
If you report that they started it in 2008, now in 2016 you’re the “birther” or “a convert” to being a birther.
Why? Because they say get to say what is true at that moment, and if it changes, it changes. The Facts are only the facts as long as the serve the Agenda.
And you are not allowed to disagree with that.
